Top 10 reasons why customers switch from Airtable to Tadabase


1.  Tadabase builds full-scale database applications 

While Airtable is a spreadsheet software with some database capabilities, Tadabase is an advanced relational database application builder that uses an easy spreadsheet-like interface to create complex, enterprise-grade database applications you can use to run your entire business and power every daily operational process within your organization. 

2.  Tadabase applications provide complex automation and business logic

While Airtable workspaces offer basic automation and workflow features that can help organize teams and basic internal processes, only full-scale database application platforms, such as Tadabase, can provide advanced business logic complex enough to power the sophisticated daily processes of a growing business. With powerful form rules, record rules, action links, and triggered actions, you can automate your most complex business processes, reducing costs, labor, and manual errors.

3.  Tadabase is scalable

Even at its highest plan, Airtable is limited to 100,000 records per base. This limitation stunts business growth and can force customers to split data tables, compromising data integrity and the reliability of their databases. While all technology will have some natural limitations, Tadabase thrives on breaking the tech ceiling with its all-powerful SQL-backed infrastructure. With over 30 years of combined experience with building robust infrastructures and scaling large applications, as well as long-standing certifications in Microsoft Engineering and AWS architecture, the Tadabase founders built Tadabase from the ground up with scalability and limitless growth at the forefront of the platform’s design. This is why Tadabase applications can scale to millions of records at faster speed and greater efficiency than any other no-code platform.

4.  Tadabase is enterprise ready

Tadabase provides enterprises and large organizations with the ability to scale seamlessly and on their own terms. With dedicated servers and private cloud tiers, your business will enjoy the autonomy and peace of mind that comes with unlimited scale, no “noisy neighbors”, and self-manageable dedicated servers. From the convenience of your dedicated server dashboard, your team can self-monitor your app performance and dedicated resources and scale your servers up and down as you see fit.

5.  Tadabase does not charge per user

Like many other no-code platforms on the market today, Airtable utilizes an old-school per-user pricing structure, which is impractical and counterproductive for most modern, growing businesses. This traditional user-based pricing model sets an immediate cap on company collaboration and growth right out of the gate, and it discourages business owners from inviting all stakeholders to collaborate on a single source of truth. Tadabase, on the other hand, adopts a usage-based pricing structure, which encourages the inclusion of any and all users who may contribute to the data at work and contribute to your business growth. 

6.  Tabase offers advanced data privacy and granular access 

As a spreadsheet software, Airtable’s user permissions and data privacy are limited to spreadsheet capabilities. When you share a base on Airtable, anyone who has access to that base can see everything. This can result in major data privacy concerns and can force Airtable customers to create duplicates of bases and workspaces just to filter information to certain users. This creates unnecessary work and confusion and compromises data integrity and reliability. As a full-scale database application builder, Tadabase provides advanced user permissions which allow customers to secure data on a record, page, and app-wide level. With custom login portals, advanced login forms, powerful role-based permissions, and role-based routing, app users of all different roles and access levels can collaborate on one application and access only the data relevant to them.

7.  Tadabase apps can be white labeled, for real

While Airtable offers “custom branded forms,” Tadabase empowers customers to fully white label their apps and remove Tadabase branding from every facet of their applications, including the app code, URL, and design. This means that if you’re a business with a consumer-facing application or a developer building an app for a client, your applications will present entirely as your own, interface and code throughout.

8.  Tadabase is customizable

Airtable’s customization options are limited to expanded color and formatting options, advanced calendar features, and custom branded forms. While these customization options may be suitable for small management projects or basic internal processes, any business with complex workflows and multiple, dynamic moving parts will require greater flexibility and advanced customization features. With Tadabase, companies can fully white label their applications and replace all reference to Tadabase with their own branding throughout their entire apps, including app design, backend code, and app URLs. With custom portals, custom login forms, drag and drop themes, and over two dozen unique components, including the Custom Component which empowers you to create your own custom designs, your application design is limited only to your imagination.

9.  Tadabase will reduce your tech stack

When you run your business on a Tadabase application, you'll have all the services you need natively built-in to your app, including PDFs, auto-generated domain certificates, advanced design options, native integrations with any external service you need, and so much more. On Airtable, most of the critical services you need to run your business are not included, requiring Airtable customers to waste money on 3rd party services and spread their data too thin among multiple unnecessary tools. Customers who switched from other no-code platforms such as Airtable report an 80% decrease in their tech stacks since switching to Tadabase. 

10.  Tadabase has Pipes

With Pipes, Tadabases's built-in integrations system, you can natively integrate any external data you need into your app without the need for 3rd party integration tools like Zapier, Integromat, or Workato. Integrate external data from all your favorite services directly into your Tadabase app, dynamically and in real-time, without ever having to leave the Tadabase platform. Customers who switched from other no-code platforms report saving thousands of dollars a month in integration costs by switching to Tadabase.
